Here are a few. Patience and a good investment-minded real estate agent are your best assets to find short sell or foreclosure properties. The rate reset this month will shake a bunch of bad loans out within the next six months. Learn the neighborhoods where foreclosures are a high percentage of recent sales and see which of those neighborhoods are near improving business zones. Check city planning departments near your target
neighborhoods and see which have plans to grow in the near future. If you can put those two things together, you have a better shot at maximizing profit potential. Good luck!
